and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count

that they are monitoring a specific threat in yemen, the kcapital of yemen. remember, just this thursday, president obama met with yemen's president in the white house. counter-terrorism was one of the main topics they talked about. so far, the only al qaeda affiliate that has shown both the desire and ability to attack u.s. posts overseas is al qaeda in the arabian peninsula or aqap, based in yemen. >> as you said, there is this new travel alert that came out just seconds ago. let me read you a little part of that. it said an attack possibly occurring in or emanating from the arabian peninsula. clearly, there are some very specific fears for that region. one of the things we mentioned was the date right now. about a month before september 11th. the attacks in new york and 2001 and the one year anniversary of the attacks of that compound in benghazi in libya. any sense that this now round of threats causing the embassies to close this week and now this travel warning we just received, any sense those are connected to the benghazi anniversary? >> it's possible. none of the officials i spoke with are neces
